Put That Light Out Summary


Put That Light Out: The ARP, Fire Services and Police at War, 1939-45 by Mike Brown

Civil Defence was a grouping of civilian emergency services that included the National Fire Service, the police and a whole range of support services that were part of Air Raid Precautions (more commonly referred to as the ARP). Collectively they played a vital role in providing a controlled response to the effects of German bombing raids on British cities. The ARP was managed by report and control staff, incident officers and messenger services. Casualties were dealt with by the Medical Officer of Health staff via casualty clearing zones and depots. The ARP services that were actually on the front line down among the exploding bombs and collapsing buildings included the wardens, rescue services, first aid and stretcher parties, gas identification and decontamination services, roof spotters, fire watchers and fire guards. This study of Britain's wartime Civil Defence services includes details of who did what, how, where and when, interspersed with some personal accounts from fo civil defenders.
